Spring Fever Hop: Bloom Where You Are Planted

Just a few weeks ago, the groundhog saw his shadow, predicting an early Spring.  We can all hope for it!  The good news is that as I post this, it's raining here -- not snowing!

To get you in the mood for the spring season, Jillian at JillianBean Crafts assembled a group of terrific bloggers to post their most Spring-inspired project(s) on the Spring Fever Blog Hop.

So welcome!  If you're joining me mid-hop, please be sure to go to the Hop start, to our fantastic hostess's site at Jillian Bean Crafts. Hop along and don't miss a single site, you'll be inspired!  At the bottom of this post, I'll list the entire line-up, as well as your next stop at Made by Momo.


Here is what I made in response to Jillian's challenge to make something "light, springy and fun"! 

I made a decorative pomander floral ball.  At the top, I removed some of the styrofoam ball and inserted a cachet of lavendar, to get a hint of the coming season.


I used my Fairy Cut software package to create two different sizes (1" and 1.5") of the flowers with five petals. Arranged tightly on each single sheet of 12"x12" pink Bazzill paper, I was able to cut 131 of the 1" flowers on one sheet, and 56 of the 1.5" flowers on another (I cut 2 sheets of this size). 

Using the Fairy Cut program, it is so SIMPLE to do this that it takes the paper-punch work out of what could have been a tedious project like this. (And yes, I used all of the flowers I cut to make this one floral ball.)


UPDATE:  Crafters who post to today's post here on CardMonkey will be entered into February's monthly drawing for a FREE Fairy Cut Software license (a $99 USD value!), generously provided to me as a monthly prize to my followers by the manufacturer. See Blog Candy below!
I adhered the flower to the styrofoam ball using thin (27mm) dressmaker's pins that I first inserted into pearl beads (half-price at Michael's this week).  I wrapped an inexpensive candlestick in wide, pale green satin ribbon, and capped the floral ball off with a butterfly clip I purchased at ACMoore, 3 for $1.00.

I also made a springtime card to be presented with the pomander.  The how-to on making the card's pop-dot flower strip was posted on YouTube yesterday. (Keep scrolling down on this blog to see the video.)

Note too that I decorated the inside of the card, with complementing artwork and coordinating paper strips. The envelope (not shown) also has the same coordinating paper strips.
Doesn't this just put you in the mood to get your garden growing?!

Now ... on to your next stop in this fabulous hop.  (And thank you, Jillian, for inviting me to be a part of it!)
